I think I’ve never been happier. Actually, this is the strangest time to be that happy, since I’m currently studying for my exams and the stress level is super high! However, I’ve been having some reflection times, where I think about my life and I realise, I love everything about it! Of course, not everything is rainbows and butterflies: I still have those moments when I get super anxious and depressed but I’m way better at getting through those rough patches and turn the positive, happy mode on!
Create your own happiness – We shouldn’t just depend on a person, a night, a season, a party, even a tv show! Besides the fact that it’s super important to have friends, family or things that you love, the most important thing is to be at peace with yourself! We must always remember that not everything lasts forever, and not everyone will keep being a part of your life, but you will. You should be yourself’s best friend and love the person you are!
Not caring about what others think of you – Do whatever you want, even if people will judge you. Do what feels right. Follow your heart. Don’t over analyse situations and don’t overthink them. Do you, naturally! You’ll see that if you are happy being you and being confident in your actions will not only make you more comfortable with yourself, but also change other people’s perspective, hopefully for the better!
Finding what sets your soul on fire and chase that feeling – We all have passions. For some they are obvious and for others they’re pretty hard to find. I don’t even think I know what my passions are, but I have a feelin I’m pretty lose to find them. Lately, I’ve just been doing what makes me happy: have long inspirational talks, sunsets by the beach, writing! Oh, and super important! Don’t just do what others want you to do. I know sometimes it doesn’t seems, but you are free to make your own choices. Don’t feel obligated to do something you don’t like.
Shake it off! – Having bad thoughts or having bad vibes? Just shake them off. Of course I’m not saying that you should ignore your problems, you should definitely face and resolve them. I’m just saying: don’t create new problems! Mostly teens have a big tendency to worry about little things that can wreck their minds: ‘Oh, I’m so fat!’ ‘Why hasn’t he texted me today?’ ‘I want to have a boyfriend!’ ‘Am I pretty enough?’ ‘Why don’t they know who I am?’ All of that doesn’t matter, girl! Just chill and focus on what truly matters. It’s all in your head! Life is way more than that!
Living in the moment – anxiety and depression are two mental illnesses that are caused by being clinged to the future and the past, respectively. Living the today and make the most of it is a must, or else you’ll be to busy worrying about the past or the future and not living at all
Life’s all about being happy, making others happy, go on adventures, exploring and experiencing new things and feelings! Just get out and see, feel, do!
